dot 3 is fine, i always use the heavy duty. the honda brake fluid probably is dot 3 in a different bottle that costs more.

you know what? DOT 3 fluid might be OK but if I were you I wouldn't take any chances remember that if you add the wrong fluid to brake system it might overheat and cause the brake system to fail, and that could be really bad , and just because you wamted to save a couple of bucks, just add whatever the manufacturer recomends, also if your car is under warranty you might void the waranty, and you would have to pay for any damage caused to your car and believe me it can turn out very expensive.

the owner's manual probably says DOT 3 or 4 fluid for your car. use good fluid from a new, sealed container. it should not matter what brand as long as it is clean.
